About the Property

Make your Penang stay unforgettable at our top-floor, corner unit!

**Please kindly read our listing in full so that you are aware of any updates or house rules prior to booking. Thanks!!**

The one-bedroom condo apartment (950 square feet) is outfitted with a spacious master bedroom with a king-sized bed, leather reclining chair, and bathroom with bathtub, wall-TV, and an overhead shower. There is an additional bathroom connected to the living room area. The furnished living room has comfortable seating with cable TV & a DVD player and large windows. This unit also features a full kitchen, 2-in-1 washer and dryer, iron & ironing board, and hairdryer.

This unit is well-suited for single occupancy, a couple, or a small family with young children (two small floor mattresses will be provided upon request).

In addition to the aforementioned, the following will be provided:
- WiFi access
- Towels & linens
- Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash
- Welcome water bottles & fruit
- Free parking garage access card (when requested)
- Collection of books & DVDs
- First Aid Kit
- Umbrellas

Due to its location, the unit is slightly larger than other 1 bd/2 bt units in the Marina Suites.

Guests have access to a beautiful infinity-pool that is located in a terrace lined with frangipani trees. There is a children's pool and bathroom and showers for residents and guests. There is also a tennis court, fully-equipped gym, outdoor seating, and lounge seats.

On each floor, there is a lounging area with several sofas and a marina and ocean view.


****THE AREA****

The Marina Suites at Straits Quay is a development by the famous E&O Hotel Group and touts incredible design and aesthetic sentiments. The unit is located right above easily-accessible waterfront restaurants, cafes, bars, boutiques, massage parlors, hair salons, bike rental, and Sam's Groceria (a grocery store with local and Western goods). Tesco and other restaurants are less than a ten minute walk away.

The neighborhood around Straits Quay is very clean, safe, and convenient in its closeness to restaurants and other amenities. Take the kids to Straits Green, a free and clean water play area walking distance from the apartment. And don't forget to enjoy a walk day or night by the water, on paved walkways.

Our unit is in a wonderful location as it is located in between George Town and Batu Ferringhi, and down the road from Gurney. Spend a few days exploring the historical UNESCO city and a few more walking along the beaches or checking out The Tropical Spice Garden, The Penang Butterfly Farm, or ESCAPE Theme Park on the other side of the island.


****TO NOTE******

**(Just for your information, construction of another building has started in the adjacent lot. **Update October 24, 2016 - the windows and sliding door has been changed in the unit. This has greatly decreased the noise from the site. If you have any questions about this or want updates, please do not hesitate to ask!!)**


*****GETTING AROUND*****

1) BUS
Rapid Bus line 102 picks up right outside Straits Quay. Rapid Bus line 101 picks up across from Tesco (about 10 minute walk). Both of these buses will take you either towards Batu Ferringhi or towards town where upon they will eventually stop at the Komtar Bus Terminal (where you can catch any other bus). There is also a Penang Hop and Hop Off bus stop for the beach route a few steps outside the unit!

2) UBER
If you have mobile data we recommend downloading the Uber app to your phone. Uber drivers are much more affordable than taxis on the island and the service is highly recommended.

3) TAXIS
If buses don't suit you or if you don't have mobile data there are always taxis that can be found right outside of Straits Quay.



NOTE:

Discounts are provided for a week-stay and a month-long stay!

CALENDAR IS UPDATED ONCE A DAY. PLEASE INQUIRE TO ENSURE THE DATES YOU'D LIKE TO STAY ARE AVAILABLE. Thanks!
